Sydney Spring Garden Competition
The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW has a long and rich horticultural history. Since 1929, Flower and Garden competitions have featured at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
The Sydney Spring Garden Competition honours the bequest of Lt. Col. Charles Ronald Christian, a British army surgeon who visited Australia in 1933. Dr. Christian bequeathed equal shares of his estate to the cities of Sydney and Perth for the purpose of awarding annual prizes to beautiful gardens in front of or around private homes. He expressly detailed that such gardens must be viewable to the general public from the road or footpath.
Congratulations to Mrs Sharon Matthews from Baulkham Hills who has been awarded the 2023 Sydney Spring Garden Prize. Mrs Matthews received a $2,000 garden package from Flower Power, a beautiful commemorative plaque and the prestige of being the 2023 winner.
